    Take their license for 2 years! I was hit 4 times on Fayette Street. Not once was able to find that person who hit me. Police said turn it in to your insurance. Which drove my costs up! Anyone who hit and runs, should get a severe punishment. To cost them more then a slap on the wrist! Make them pay dearly for being an idiot
